Following several months of rumors, The Atlanta Business Chronicle reported this afternoon that Attorney General Sam Olens will take the helm of Kennesaw State University. Sources anticipate that Chris Carr, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, will be appointed as Attorney General by Governor Deal.
